ABSTRACT

This report on the " Study of Knowledge, Practices and Attitude of Mothers" carried out

in Arna Referral Hospital at the Family Planning Unit specifically to find out; mothers'

knowledge, attitude, participation in regard to family planning as well as its impact on

their welfare. To comprehend the problem of the study, the researcher carried out a

documentary review on the literature. The study employed a descriptive exploratory design

based on qualitative and quantitative approaches where the researcher obtained data on

the variables by use of a questionnaire and interview guide as research instruments from a

sample of 40 respondents comprising of 5 medical personnel and 35 mothers all clients at

the unit. The study findings revealed that, the following on knowledge of mothers; have

been sensitized on family knowledge, open to criticism by men, it fights poverty, women

have little knowledge, and both prescriptive and non prescriptive methods are used. The

attitude towards family planning was that; health risk of pregnancies were minor to those

of contraceptives, family planning is expensive, women buy from the negative tendencies

of their husbands and others view it simply as a way of spacing children. The level of

participation was influenced by; abortion practices, awareness campaigns by government

involvement and limited participation due to unmet family planning demand. The impact

included; improvement of mothers' knowledge on child welfare, regaining of

reproductive strengths, reducing maternal deaths, improving standard of living, reducing

grief, and preventing spread of diseases. The study concludes that there is need for

sensitization of men, to win their consent on use of family planning services because the

'

mother's position can be compromised to acceptance and government needs to subsidize

the services to eliminate the barrier of unmet need.

The study recommended; expanded and open service delivery; restriction of the

maximum number of births; setting a comprehensive, integrated approach to be based

upon; dedicating more effort and resources to those that are in the most need, awareness

campaigns be revised; build capacity of health unit staff in mobilization; encouraging

safe motherhood; sensitizing women into the disadvantages of unspaced births;

integration of family planning services into public health; drama campaigns; and devising programs for campaigns through media.
